Saratoga, X. Y., Sept. 29. At Its

convention nominated the following
For governor, Henry L. Stlmson of
New York; lieutenant governor, Ed
ward Schoeneck of Syracuse; secre
tary of state. Samuel S. Kocnlg of

attorney general. Edward R. O'Malloy
of Butlalo; stajo engineer and sur
veyor, Frank H. Williams of Oneida;
associate judge of the court of ap
peals. Irving G Vann of Syracuse.
Mr. Root called the final session of
the convention to order. There wcro
no more skyrockets, no moro fusses,
tut all hands got down o business,
as a vast majority of the delegates
wanted to get back homo. The roll
call for nomination for governor
brought forth Kingsbury Foster of
the Nineteenth assembly district of
New York county, who nominated
Representative William S. Dennett.
Mr. Foster extolled Representative
Bennett, telling what a fine nHan ho
was, how he had been Instrumental
at Albany in pushing the ehiployers'
liability law, and Mr. Foster added
that Representative Bennett's energy
and industry In promoting the work
of the Federation of Labor and his
loyalty to organized labor and his
great popularity among Jew and Gen
til had mnde him the "Sir Galahad"
of the people.
Colonel Steps to Front.
When Nassau county was called
Colonel Roosevelt stepped up to the
stand. "I hae a genuine regard and
respect," Bald the new leader, of the
Republican party, "for Representa
tive Bennett, but tho situation calls
for another man at this time. I rise
to nominate Henry Stlmson of New
"York. Ho is a very good man. As
president of the United States I ap
pointed him United States district at
torney of Now York. It was neces
sary to have an honest man in that
place, a man of truculent integrity.
I conferred with Mr. Root at the
thno and we decided that Mr. Stim
eon was the man who must act
against tho most powerful combina
tions of business Interests in the
world. I believed that Mr. Stlmson
ns United States district attorney
would be called upon to moot tho
very ablest lawyers the corporations
could employ. Mr. Stlmson made
good. He was pitted against thefbest
lawyers of the land. It was his busi
ness to bring to book the sugar trust,
which had defrauded the government
out of enormous sums, literally avast
fortune. Mr. Stlmson convicted man
after man In the sugar trust. He'
proved his 'ease so true that the trust
threw up its hands and restored an
enormous sum to the government.
Mr. Stlmson Is a man of trenchant
ability and I have tho very greatest
pleasure in nominating him for- gov
ernor of tho state of Now York."
When tho rollcall for votes was
announced Albany county, through
William Barnes, Jr., announced; "Al
bany county casts 27 votes for Mayor
James B. McGvvnn of Albany, ono
delegate not voting."
, When Columbia county 'was reach
ed Louis F. Payn cast ,tho seven
votes of that county for Mayor Mc
Ewan. When Livingston county was
reached Frank K. Cook shouted: '"Wo
liavo. novor sc en this man Stlmson,
hut we sling Mm three votes." There
were seven otes lntho Livingston
county delegat on and the other four
were absent. When Monroe county
was reached Coorge W. Aldrldgecast

the 38 votes for Thomas B. Dunn, tho
present state treasurer.
The total vote for those named for
governor was as follows: Stlmson,

Immediately after Permanent Chair
man Root announced the result of
tho ballot, Mr. Foster, Representative
Bennett's spokesman, moved to make
Mr. Stimson's nomination unanimous.
Speaker Wadsworth, head of the Liv
ingston county delegation, did like
wise, and so did William Barnes, Jr.,
head of the Albany county delega
tion. Speaker Wadsworth deprecated
the exceeding unfortunate manner In
which announcement of Livingston
county's vote was made. The speak
er added that while ho had his differ
ences in this convention, he had no
sympathy with any display of bitter
ness. As expected, tho plank in the Re
publican state platform which was
Intended by Colonel Roosevelt to
ovorshadow all else was that which
declared for continuation of the graft
hunt. The direct primary plank, over
which ,tho biggest fight was mid?,
wis a distinct compromise, although
it pledged the party to direct nomi
nations eventually. President Taft's
administration Is also enthusiastical

Havens Of Rochester Touted As Winner By Those
Rochester, N. Y., Sept. 29. The
Democratic state convention opened
for business a', noon today, with the
following candidates for the guberna
torial nomination in the field:
James S. Havens of Rochester,
Thomas S. Osborne of Cayuga, Wil
liam Sulzer of New York, Edward M.
Shepard of Brooklyn, Justice James
Gerard of New York, Martin Littleton
of Brooklyn and John A. Bensel of
It Is universally conceded that
the choice rests with Chailes P.
Murphy, the Tammany leader. He Is
the real state leader, and It Is admit
ted by ever one here that the candi
date he decides to support will be
nominated. He has at least 186
votes besides some from New York,
Queens, Kings and Westchester coun
ties, and can also command the votes
of the delegates from Chemung, Cat
taraugas, Warren, Dutchess and Che
nango counties, which will mean
that he will have mqre than a ma
jority of the "votes.
Murphy, however, refuses to make
the slightest Intimation as to the
candidate he is likely to support
The indications strongly favor Ha

Rochester Is one of the places
where hard things are seldom said
about the Murphy guards. Rochester
rather likes to have Tammany

that is that the chamber of commerce
